"We had the most relaxing vacation ever this year. Our daughter graduated from SSU just two days before my birthday. We got to celebrate both over on the coast! This little cottage was the best. Both Joy and Kendall were super helpful. The back & forth emails really helped me feel like this place was the right choice for us, and our little dog. They were both super easy to communicate with, getting back to us in just a short time. When we arrived, the housekeeper, Ana was still there. She was so cute, and extremely nice, since we were a bit early. She welcomed us inside, and we sat on the deck watching the ocean waves, while she finished up. She does an exceptionable job of keeping the place tidy. We spent lots of time on the clean Dillon Beach, which was only a few minute walk from the cottage. The weather was perfect while we were there, a little bit of everything, but mostly cool nights and warm days. I highly recommend this little unit, and my hubby and I are already talking about making this one of our "go to" spots for a quick 2-3 day retreat from our busy lives. Thank you Joy, Kendall, and Ana, for making this a very special vacation for us!"

"I am 43 yr old male and just recently spent 2 days at this studio with my wife and 3 year old girl. The bottom line for this unit is it’s a great value and location. We choose this unit as alternative to staying in the city where prices avg 300/night. It’s only a quick 20 minute drive to downtown SF and sports some amazing ocean views with one hell of a surf break (albeit crowded lineup). The owner is nice and responsive and the location was quiet and safe. There is a dog that lives there named Lola who is a sweetheart and if you are not dog people it might be a problem, but for us it was a bonus. The unit has a little tinge of a musty smell but what beach house in Nor Cal doesn’t? (and for 150/night who cares) This wasn’t an issue for us. The unit was nicely stocked and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it for people seeking a cheaper alternative to staying in a hotel in SF."

"My family and I stayed at this beautiful cottage for almost a week. The cottage is situated in a garden, and has all of the amenities. The owners were very responsive to my many questions and even accommodated a last minute change to our reservation. Fairfax is a small town that has several grocery stores, pharmacies and of course quaint shops. The locals are so friendly and advised us of area attractions as well as eateries. Fairfax is the perfect launching point for exploring the surrounding area including Napa Valley (about an hour drive), Muir Woods (20-30 mins), Stinson Beach (30 mins), and San Francisco (Larkspur ferry terminal is about 15 mins). We would definitely rent this cottage again."

"My friends and I came to the house for a writing retreat and had such a wonderful time that we plan on making it a regular pilgrimage. The house was warm and inviting, clean, and well-stocked with everything we needed to make ourselves at home. We are all foodies, and found the size of the kitchen to be absolutely perfect for preventing that awkward "too many cooks in the kitchen" problem. One person was on chef duty, another on clean up, and we rotated through. The wood-burning stove and the hot tub were the perfect antidote to the fog, and we didn't have a worry about the whereabouts of our dogs in the enclosed yard. We will definitely be back! Also, as an aside, it's a great location for cycling enthusiasts as well. I got some great riding in!"
